Sciurus pucheranii (Fitzinger, 1867) is a sciurid commonly called the Andean squirrel. This small tree squirrel has reddish brown pelage with a dark dorsal midline and is 1 of 28 species in the genus Sciurus. It is endemic to Colombia, South America, and is found in sub-Andean and high-elevation cloud forests of the Cordillera chains of the Andes Mountains. Deforestation within the range of S. pucheranii may negatively impact this species in the future. Currently the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources lists S. pucheranii in the Data Deficient (DD) category.
